It is time for Recipe Swap Club again and this month I was tasked with Fix Me A Little Lunch with Ali. Ali lives in Oregon, where I was raised, and she is a member of the Community Supported Agriculture where she gets to visit local farms and learn more about local produce. A lot of Ali’s recipe are based on local fruits and vegetables and there are drink recipes galore!

I wasn’t aware of this but a large percentage of cranberries produced are from Oregon and this time of year, cranberries are everywhere! You can’t have a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner without a cranberry dish. I chose to make this Cranberry Poblano Relish and Cream Cheese Dip using Ali’s relish recipe for the simplicity, spice and in spirit of the season.
This Cranberry Poblano Relish goes beyond a cream cheese dip. Spread it on a sandwich or place it on some crackers with brie cheese. It is really delicious and makes your mouth do that little happy food dance. Be aware that this is a bit spicy so if you are serving a group of people, think about doing a second dip for those non-spice lovers (hey, they exsist).
